District Cub Boot & Compass Challenge

posted 23 Mar 2015, 04:42 by ADC Cubs
We had beautiful weather and an excellent turnout for this year's District Boot & Compass Challenge in Bernwood Forest.

Twenty three teams attended from 10th Oxford, 22nd Oxford, 28th Oxford, 33rd Oxford, 43rd Oxford, 54th Oxford, Wheatley and Yarnton. They competed to find their way around a course in the fastest possible time. Armed with compass, whistle, pencil and answer sheet they were given a series of bearings and had to find their way from base to base, recording the letters and numbers along their way.

The winning team was from 33rd Oxford (Jacala) with a time of 24 minutes. In second place were 10th Oxford (just 26 seconds behind) and in third place were 43rd Oxford (26 minutes and 21 seconds). The full score sheet is shown below.

Well done to everyone who took part and thank you to all the leaders and parents who helped out.
